recording of The Boys' Life of Mark Twain by Albert Bigelow Pain read by John Greenman.
Albert Bigelow Paine was Samuel Langhorne Clemens’ (Mark Twain’s) biographer. He lived with Twain, collecting ideas and material for a biography, for a few years before Twain’s death in 1910. Six years later Paine published this “story of a man who made the world laugh and love him.”
For those who have read or listened to Mark Twain’s works, Paine’s work is an invaluable resource to better understand Twain, the stories behind his stories and his life with those he loved and with whom he worked. (Summary by John Greenman)

they told the truth
I thought, "Nah, they're exagerating, like my spelling of exaggeratting." But nope, those reviewers told it right.

I agree with Starlite's review
Great reading by Librivox's Mark Twain master, John Greenman. I believe I will listen to it again.

Amazing Story of Mark Twain
If you haven't listened to any of Mark Twain's books, I highly recommend you do before listening to this.
It is absolutely an amazing story and explains where all of Twain's Characters come from. You will find yourself thoroughly entangled in Twain's life as you listen to LibriVox's 'Voice of Mark Twain' John Greenman tell your this story. You will laugh and you will cry. I wish I could give this more then 5 stars!!!
